Joy of Martyrdom

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

Today is the feast of St. James the Elder. He was one of the pillars of the Apostle's, along with his brother St. John and St. Peter. He was martyred for the faith by beheading by Herod Agrippa I in either 42 or 44 A.D. This doesn't seem like the best way to end a career. Remember James and...
